The Heidelberg School and the Rural MythologyBook - 1985
The Heidelberg School was the name given to a circle of 19th century Australian artists, led by Tom Roberts, whose figure paintings expressed deeply rooted human fears, wishes, and preoccupations. This comprehensive overview examines the art in a social and cultural context and reveals how the paintings helped to develop the rural mythology extant in Australia at the time.
